This is a beautful restaurant with persian rugs on the floor and a lovely decor. The owner Maria came to our table for a nice chat. We had clams and a pumpkin lasagne to start with and the red mullet and pork rib for mains. Everything was superb, delicate aromas and very good service. The winelist was also great.

On a recent visit to ALICANTE we stumbled upon a hotel with a nice looking open restaurant on a central street. We were looking at the menu when a waitress asked if we would like to try their Michelin star restaurant inside the Hotel. We took a table in the restaurant and the waiter at our table took a good...

We went to Monastrell for our wedding anniversary as it is definitely suited to a special occasion. The staff were impeccable and the food was exquisite. They made us feel special without imposing and the 'Happy Anniversary' message on our chocolate pudding was very much appreciated.

A couple were sat behind us about 10 minutes after we were seated. they received menus. We did not. We had to ask staff... More

we visited Monastrell 16th of July, it was my Birthday and my daughter has decided to make me present with a dinner with Michelin star restaurant. Everything was great, service and food until they brought us chocolate cake that we did not ask for. It was very nice first, because we decided that this is is just a nice gesture... More

Ate here in two parts - firstly in the bar for a glass & tapas before heading out to eat elsewhere. We were the only ones in there, but that provided opportunity to chat to the waiters. Secondly was to eat from the menu - the cherry gazpacho soup was superb. A little brown bag of bread with olive oil... More

The hallmark "Michelin Star" looks like a mockery or a bad joke in this place. Menu is more than average, they brought us salad made of tomatoes and cucumbers even without dressing. No fantasy at all, like these were the last products that they had found in the fridge. The next awful thing is that I told the waiter that... More

We visited this place by chance when walking by because the atmosphere and settings looked really nice. They have a courtyard where you can sit and feel like being outside and also a nice indoor part. The place has a quality tapas part and a fancier restaurant with apparently one michelin star. We went to the restaurant and were not... More
